Weekend Recap: Snowdonia Marathon, High’s and Former Lowes


Snowdonia Marathon:
Congratulations to Karen Ratcliffe who took on the fast and flat (LOL!) Snowdonia Marathon. Karen ran 4:58:56 for the marathon distance. A more than respectable time for any marathon that doesn’t include a mountain! 

Life’s little up’s and down’s! 

Brueton parkrun:
A quietish K&D weekend at Brueton was enlivened by a brand new female inductee into the sub-20 club. Emma Horsfield stormed round in a  19:52 PB as the women continued to smash barriers over the last few weeks. That puts Emma 5th fastest K&D woman at Brueton ever, booting Mary out the top-4 by a mere 4seconds. We doubt it’s the end of that little tooing and fro-ing in the near future

Emma on Saturday was joined by Kerry Ann Thompson who ran 21:51 and Louise Bell who ran 23:38.

The gents had the headlines stolen from them by the women this week. That didn’t stop Pete Makepeace climbing the podium summit. Running 19:23, Pete just missed his PB. Warning though, Gary Polhill who just joined K&D was ran 19:17 but misses out by just a few days on a week 1 podium. Paul Bentley and Anthony Dutton rounded out the K&D Top-3 this week with a 19:31 and 19:34.

Joining Emma Horsfield in the PB Teepee this week is Jack Whitehouse who rewrote his parkrun PB with a 22:11.

Ipswich parkrun:
Which Witch is Rob Michaelson Yeates Twitching? His 18:05 got in a pre-Halloween win at Ips-witch Parkrun.

Walsall Arboretum parkrun:
A coven of Calvert, Partridge and Taylor attended Walsall Arboretum parkrun on Saturday as Lissy, Gail and Penny enchanted their way to runs of 29:15, 29:40 and 30:08.

Coventry parkrun:
The only thing scary about Coventry parkrun is that ring road on the way in. Shudders. Simon Battson survived to run 25:01

Holkham parkrun:
Ainsley put the (f)right in Wainwright as he ran 26:10 in Holkham.
